I think attitudes are caught not taught, what I mean by this is kids are pushed towards that violent tendency. As professor Steven pinker said we live in the most peaceful time in our existences; violent crimes have definitely gone down over the decades. I do not believe television violence has negative effect on our society, I don’t believe it promotes it.
As I stated professor Steven pinker said we live in the most peaceful time in our existences; homicide levels have gone down drastically since our TV’s have had upgrades over the years. If comparing homicide levels from back then, to now it’s a big difference it cannot be compared. If anything has taught us how to be violent is our leaders; only 8% of our history has been peaceful.
There has been a big violence decline after we improved or technology and literacy, so it could be keeping us distracted other than making us violent. Studies show that homicide rates dropped since the first TV came out in the 1920’s. Either way people have gotten smarter over the decades so they should be able to defer what’s real from acting on TV. A child could probably not be rational enough but we shouldn’t be showing our kids violent TV showings either way.
What could be worse seeing the action from your couch at the house or being in the action first hand with the problem and the solution in your hand. Have you seen the games kids these days play mostly being violent franchises and they somehow still get it? So could it be the TV influencing violence, or the parents to that child that acts a bit too violent? TV has massive regulations about what can be on the air so that violence isn’t a big come out on live TV.
I do not believe television violence has negative effect on our society, I don’t believe it promotes it. We are currently in the most peaceful time in our history of being on this earth; So no I don’t believe that TV could be causing people to act out of the ordinary and become a bit too violent when violence isn’t needed.
